VIEWPOINT - Police Should Educate Drivers
You may be interested in the number of distracted drivers nabbed by Comox Valley RCMP in a recent 5 day campaign. They caught 91 drivers including one who received 2 tickets in one day-likely the same bad habit as the lady in Vancouver with 14 tickets.
I commend the local RCMP for their ability to detect these distracted driver as I rarely notice them any more. Speeding drivers are much more obvious.
According to the newspaper article, several drivers who were stopped, didn’t seem to realize what was illegal. The RCMP spokesman said it was up the public to educate themselves.
As you have stated, road safety is everybody’s responsibility, but some one, some where in the BC System of Governance and Public Safety should be concerned about the number of high risk drivers on our road who have a low probability of being educated by anyone.
I would like to see our local RCMP making more of these educational interventions, every day , but some has to make this a priority.
